Christine says: “I feel very privileged to have been invited to this event. It was a brilliant opportunity to learn more about the Income Tracker – a true barometer of the economy.”

Our monthly Income Tracker measures how much families have left to spend each week after paying for essentials such as electricity and fuel, food and housing costs. Based on this research we predict that by 2018 the average UK household will be £1,300 worse off than they were at the peak of spending power in 2009.
